as republicans here. i sort of feel like this is an effort at a bipartisan -- bipartisanship. i know sandy had to leave. we were talking about the ratings agencies and what debate. reading the executive management report from the ratings agency that also pointed to the congress that one of the reasons -- huge reason for the downgrade, they didn't feel that the congress had the political will to address the spending crisis that we are in either. so that was also a big part of the downgrade of our credit rating. now i think, you know, we are trying to exercise the political will to address our spending by having a budget which you can't really talk about appropriation bills and all of these kinds of things in my mind having this saddam continuing resolutions to fund the government forever is unsustainable. you need to pass a budget to begin with a foundation. >> mr. cole, i also talked to attorneys, our attorneys, some other attorneys, not just on our staff and i tell them, talk to me like i can understand you. because they talk too much legal lease. i ask them, if i get a paycheck in my account
you've got the sandy hook families coming in, it's very hard to oppose -- it's not about the president. you've got -- it's not even about bloomberg's money that's going to go into the advertising. the emotional force of the sandy hook families is just like it was with the 9/11 families. and republicans have got to face up to that. frankly, democrats have to face up and grow a spine here as well. they have run away from the gun debate for 20 years or so because it's helped them get into power in some states. >> by the way, there are 30 to 40 democrats in the house, too, will also fight any reasonable, rational reforms. you know, one of the moments yesterday, richard, that i thought was really telling, i thought one of the president's strongest moments is when he said if you have a congressman or congresswoman that supports assault weapons, ask them why. see, that's where the extremists, that's where the survivalists lose this argument. why do you need an assault weapon? why do you need a high-capacity magazine? you start talking to them, and it always goes back to the same thing. always
for superstorm sandy. the relief package was passed by the senate even though house speaker john boehner hadn't brought it up for a vote. in fact, the senate passage helped to put pressure on the house. sandy relief passed in the house with a minority of republican votes and almost every democrat. speaker boehner would not have brought the bill to the floor if it hadn't already been passed in the senate. there was similar pressure with the fiscal cliff deal. it passed in the senate first. then boehner was forced to bring it to the floor for a vote and the house, even though only a minority of republicans supported it. today senator majority leader harry reid seemed to clarify his position somewhat. in a statement he said, "i am committed to ensuring the senate will consider legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year. all options should be on the table." well, that sounds a little bit better. but there should be no hedging on this issue whatsoever. especially from democrats. because if they side with the president of the united states t
put it in the supplemental bill for sandy. and guess what? the house republicans stripped it out and didn't put it in their version of the sandy bill. so even today, after we know what happened, the republicans are still not willing to give her the resources to protect our diplomats abroad. >> senator, what was this hearing about today? was it about getting and finding solutions or something else? >> listen, to me, this was simply about politics, right, about two-thirds of the republicans that asked questions asked questions about a handful of tv appearances by susan rice. the fact is if republicans asked just a small percentage of the questions that they've been asking about these television appearances about the war in iraq, we wouldn't be talking about saving four lives, we would be talking about saving 4,000 lives. and so i'm glad she's being as transparent as she has been. but it's about time to focus on something bigger than this. >> senator, you have access to these intelligence materials. did you learn anything today? was there any new information that came out today? >>
because it was in the senate version of sandy and it was not put in to the senate -- the house version of sandy. so no, we cannot -- we cannot move money we already have to address the needs and deficiencies that the arb has recommends we do. >> well, i would just echo the comments that have been made already by this committee and by you that this is action that we need to get moving on immediately because we still have people at risk around the world. we need to take the action that's going to ensure their security. so i would certainly urge the chairman and ranking member to move the committee to do everything we can to make this happen. and i want to go back to something that the secretary sni said because i asked about the cooperation between the department of defense and state. and what the situation was on the ground before the benghazi attack in terms of the placement of our military in the region. he talked about the unprecedented cooperation between state and defense in response to benghazi. but i wonder if you could talk about how we ensure that this is a standard way of doin
a balanced budget. the senate is expected to approve aid for states devastated by superstorm sandy. senators will vote on a $50 billion dollar bill today. last week, congress said yes to the funding... but not without no votes. the majority of republican house members voted against the bill.. calling it too expensive and saying it should come with spending cuts. january 4th, congress agreed to $9.7 billion package to assist with flood insurance claims from the storm. japan airlines is canceling more flights this week due to technical problems aboard boeing's 787 dreamliner. last week jal cancelled round trip flights.. and will continue those cancellations through january 25th. airlines in japan are among the first to fly the dreamliner. the e-u and f-a-a already grounded all 787s last week after batteries caught fire. reports say solving the battery problems will be "very expensive." u.s. transportation authorities are not sure when any of the aircraft will fly again. traders have their eyes on shares of osi systems-- now that tsa agents will no longer peek at nude images of travelers

following this gun debate very closely and it's just another indication that the sandy hook tragedy can translate to action in washington. grace lee, cbs 5. >>> even an 11-year-old knows the obstacles standing in the way of the president's plan. >> in the letter that julia wrote me, she said, "i know that laws have to be passed by congress. but i beg you to try very hard." [ laughter ] >> julia, i will try very hard. >> the reaction from congressional leaders was lukewarm at best. in recent weeks gun sales have skyrocketed nationwide. >>> hours before the president unveiled his proposals, the nation's most powerful gun lobby had already launched a preemptive strike. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? >> in a move to rally gun rights supporters, the nra released this online video that calls out the president for allowing armed secret service agents to protect his daughters at school but pushing back against the nra's call for armed security at all schools. the white house called the ad, quote, repugnant and cowardly. >>> for more
, sandy levin. interestingly enough, sandy and i actually share act. sometimes you hear the term, reagan democrats. it was from our county. you have two. you have two very divergent beliefs coming out of a county. but one thing that is a very commonality of think of a county like mccomb, is we have budgets. we pass budgets on time. we balance them. we just think you should have a budget. interestingly enough, just before i came here, before we had our vote series, i was doing something i call congress in the classroom where i was going to call it skype, but it's the new technology as uvo. i talk to all these kids in my district, my part of the county, about things that are going on in congress. i was telling them about this particular piece of legislation that was going to come before the congress tomorrow and tell them that the senate had actually not passed a budget in almost four years. they said, how could that be? isn't there anything you can do to force that? i said, we're going to try tomorrow and it's unfortunate it has to come to that. whatever kind of budget the senate would pa
to put it into the senate version of the sandy supplemental. it did not get into the house side. we're still looking for the house to act. with respect to mali, senator, there was a country that made progress on its democracy. unfortunately, it suffered a military coop, some groups as well as other groups had been in the employ of gadhafi. with his fall, they came out of libya bringing huge amount of weapons from the enormous stores of weapons that gadhafi and others. at the same time, there was a move by the al qaeda and maghreb and we've been working to upgrade security around northern mali. algeria is the only one with any real ability to do that. most of these countries don't have the capacity to do that. we are now trying to help put together an african force from ecowa so african soldiers will be in the front of this fight. the malians asked the french to come in. france is one of our oldest allies. we are trying to provide support to them. but this is going to be a very serious, ongoing threat because if you look at the size of northern mali, if you look at the topography, it

into the sandy hook school shooting will be delivered by state police today. the presentation will be made at the first meeting of the new sandy hooke advisory commission. the group also hear from experts involved in the aftermath of the virginia tech and columbine and tragedies. their goal is to come up with recommendations on school safety, a mental- health and gun violence prevention. their initial report is due by march the 15th. >> the lafayette school district is joining a growing list of schools making security changes. the district will implement a new emergency block down system. hill will allow teachers to lock their doors from inside the classroom as that of going out in the fall. the new locks will go into all five district schools on all 205 classroom doors. the locks are just one new layer of security. new security cameras are also now in place, about a dozen at each school they work day and night. >> san mateo county plans to hold its first gun buyback program of the year. the gun buyback aims to monetarily reward the voluntary surrender of firearms in an attempt at reducing
now. they have taxes raised and passed the sandy relief on a bipartisan vote and they will pass immigration reform and deal with the debt ceiling. he broke the republicans's arms on that. >> still got the votes. >> sandy relief who will disagree on that? >> a lot of of people. remember how chris christie was screaming? >> screaming at -- >> house republicans. >> right. >> what happens is up until now you had something called the hastert rule in the house. republicans stood together. that has been demolished in the last month. it's going to continue to be demolished when votes on immigration comes up and solving the sequestration money comes up and also on the budget. the real test for the president is whether he is going to go up against his own caucus to do things on medicare social security and a few other issues. >> we are looking at the president on a motorcade going down pennsylvania avenue. every time i look at the inaugural route, i can't help but go back to january 20th 1977 and jimmy carter breaking precedent and stepping out of the car and shaking h
from super storm sandy. the midwest dealing with the devastating drought. i mean, is there an area on climate change where republicans can find some common ground with the president and isn't the economic issue on the side of change? >> well, you know, it isn't a matter of arguing whether or not one believes or does not believe in climate change. it really is can he sell these initiatives in this economic environment. by about a two to one margin, people view the issue of energy as an economic issue rather than an environmental issue. so it isn't a matter of arguing whether climate change, if you believe it or not, is about in this economy can he sell that. given the state of the economy, given that families are struggling with cost of living, with energy and utility costs being a key driver of that, i think that will be a tough sell for him beyond his base. >> ladies, more to come on this. thank you so much. >> thank you. >>> also making news this morning, record-breaking snow and freezing temperatures. lake-effect snow is slamming the great lakes. some in the snow belt could have
to come in and settle themselves down. super storm sandy, drought on agriculture, wildfires, the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear reactor accident in japan last year, haiti earthquake, the list is long and worrying. in 20 # 11, we had more disasters in the united states costing more than a billion dollars than ever. in fact, we had more expensive disasters, but not quite as many in 2012. the drought and the super storm were hugely, hugely expensive. disasters are happening with greater frequency, greater severity, and absolutely with many, many greater costs. we ray -- we are here over the next three days to work across traditional boundaries to connect scientists of all stripes with practitioners, with policymakers from the international to the local level with conservation organizations, with cooperations, and it is our belief that only, and i want to emphasize "only" by working together can we solve these challenges that face us. the costs are the just not financial, but as we tragically know, many, many lives are lost in these disasters so if we can come up with just one

, and to honor, the lessons of sandy hook elementary school? and the realization that unacceptable levels of gun violence plague our cities and towns every day. this unspeakable tragedy, and the individual tragedies that take place on your streets all too often and all too often unnoticed, stand as stark reminders of our shared responsibility to address not just the epidemic of gun-related crimes, and the ongoing need for vigorous enforcement of our laws but also the underlying conditions that give rise to gun violence. throughout our history, the overwhelming majority of american gun owners have been responsible, law-abiding citizens. yet we've repeatedly seen -- in the most tragic ways -- how easy it can be for dangerous people to acquire, and wreak havoc with, deadly weapons. although there's no single solution that can bring a decisive end to this senseless violence, it's incumbent upon each of us to try. and it's time to consider what common-sense steps we can take together -- to save lives. this means doing everything we can to secure the tools and resources we need to keep guns out of the
